The Writers Club FAQ
1. What is The Writers Club?
The Writers Club is an exclusive Facebook Group for Booknet Authors only. Where writers from Booknet can talk, meet, chat, and discuss our current, ongoing, and/or new projects with our fellow authors. You can ask for advice or help and you're bound to get some great feedback from the group.
2. Can I be a Reader and join?
This group is for writers only. We do however have content about all the authors and their stories available on the main page Booknet Authors that you can Follow and Like if you are interested as a reader to learn more about the writers here on Booknet.
4. I'm thinking of joining Booknet and writing can I join The Writers Club first?
No, you need to have a Booknet profile name, and a book posted to be considered.
3. I'm an author and have a profile but I haven't posted any books yet, can I still join?
Once you post your story you can join. It does not have to be a complete story but in order for you to be considered a Booknet Author and for The Writers Club you have to have content to offer for the readers of Booknet to read.
4. Why is it a closed group?
We have made it a closed group to give our writers a safe place they can meet, chat, and discuss their ideas in private. What is said in the club stays in the club.
5. What benefit is there to join?
You mean besides all the really cool writers you will meet? Well from our members we will select twice a month a writer to interview for our Authors Spotlight, which you can only be eligible for if you are a member of the club. We also have the Book Nook where we choose among our members a book that will be reviewed and discussed by your peers once a week.
6. Can I promote my books in the club?
You can not make any spamming or self-promoting posts in the club. It's not what the club is meant for. It's a place to meet, chat and grow as writers. We will have special posts on the main page every Tuesday and Thursday for the purpose of promoting your works.
